The original movie from 1993 was an instant hit upon its release. With its heartwarming portrayal of Daniel, a recently divorced father who finds a creative way to spend more time with his children, he takes on a different persona -Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire! She is an elderly Scottish nanny, Mrs. Doubtfire soon becomes a fixture in the kids’ lives after charming his way in. But it seems like he’s going to need a lot more than a facelift to escape from the consequences once questions begin to surface about just who this Mrs. Doubtfire is.

It went on to win the Golden Globe Award for “Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.” Robin Williams was awarded the Golden Globe Award for “Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.” It became Fox’s highest-grossing film internationally at the time and the highest-grossing cross-dressing film. To this day, the film remains a staple in every comedy lovers’ list of best movies to watch.
A musical adaptation of the timeless movie began in 2015. However, it wasn’t until 2019 that Mrs. Doubtfire the Musical made its Broadway debut. The production was directed by Tony Award-winning director Jerry Zaks. Since then, the production has landed in several cities across the United States, even making its debut in the United Kingdom.
Maya Phillips from The New York Times wrote nothing but praises for the Broadway production. She said: “O’Farrell and the Kirkpatrick brothers, whose previous Broadway outing was the 2015 musical “Something Rotten!,” generate a smattering of laughs with the original material, like Frank’s quirk of shouting whenever he lies, and the second half of Daniel’s makeover song, when the list of fashion inspirations for a matronly Scottish nanny change from the glamorous Jackie O. and Princess Di to the more practical Margaret Thatcher and Julia Child. And a chorus of singing and dancing internet chefs, there via the magic of a tablet to help Mrs. Doubtfire cook dinner, is hilariously interrupted by an ad for IBS. Yet the scenes that draw the biggest laughs here are still the ones that are almost identical to the ones in the film.”
